Living in Belgium and working in Netherlands

Question

I am currently on a temporary resident permit with Belgium. I live with my husband who works here in Belgium. Recently I have been offered a job in Netherlands. Can I live in Belgium and work in Netherlands?
Questions:
1. Will my husband or I be double taxed?
2. Can I pay taxes in Netherlands, if I am not living there?
3. Can the employer want me to stay in Netherlands to work there?

For the tax situation, there are very well established protocols between Belgium and all the frontier countries, Holland, France, Germany and Luxembourg that cover cross border workers, because there are a lotof them. If you Google something like "travail frontalier Belgique et Pays-Bas" you'll come across a lot, and obviously if you do the same in Dutch, you'll probably find a lot more.

Tax will not be a problem though you might end up paying a slightly different total.
Your potential employer will not be able to offer you a job if your temporary resident permit is not valid in Nederland.
Your employer will have no problem with where you make your home so long as you get to work on time.
